Mélange Restaurant & Bar at the Chateau Lake La Quinta
generous portion of fish and good hot bread is about the only good things I can say aboit the foos
Waiter was great guy 100% very nice very friendly
First time for us and what a nice afternoon we had. The atmosphere is wonderful - sat right on the water under a shade so the temperature was fine for a late lunch - not too hot. Our server, Johnni, was delightful - very attentive, friendly, responsive and treated us like we were special. She went out of her way to ensure everything was just right. Our greeter at the desk was also superb in attitude and service. Could not have been a nicer afternoon - we will definitely return.
Melange Restaurant is a sleeper particularly this time of year (summer). We were the only diners, sat lakeside enjoying the fountain. Service was exemplary, food equally as good. Staff friendly and most attentive. Definitely a return is on the list!
Service awful. Not enough help. Waited an hour for food. Waited at least 20 minutes for bread. Basically I won’t recommend or return.
Jose our waiter is the greatest asset to the restaurant! He is the big reason l would return. He was so attentive, and do to our every need. If I was opening a restaurant l would try to steal him away in a minute.
Great waitress. Please find a way to get rid of the bugs
Our waiter was very attentive and helpful. The host when we first arrived was a little rude, which considering there were only 2 other tables of diners was a little off putting. However the waiter and busser more than made up for his attitude. The atmosphere on the edge of the lake is stunning. For that alone I would definitely come back, let alone the very nice meal we enjoyed.
This is a great place for a romantic dinner date. The hostess was amazing she was right on top of everything even wishing us a Happy Anniversary and taking our drink order. The server was definitely not great. After waiting about 15-20 min for someone to come over and take our order I asked the buser to send over the server. When the server showed up he asked what we would like to drink, mind you we already had drinks on the table from the hostess. My wife ordered the salmon with kalamata brine and it was very bland. She wanted it because of the kalamata brine and it had not flavor with it at all. The server never came by to see how the meal was going until we asked for the check and he then asked how the food was. Because my wife didn't eat much of her meal the server took off the salmon from the check. We never asked for that just mentioned that it was bland. The server was more attentive to another guest who showed up 20 min after us and was making sure they were taken care of with their drinks and food. If it wasn't for the hostess this would've been a really crappy Anniversary.
Wonderful restaurant really do enjoy sitting outside when the weather is right. Food was great but I feel it is too pricey. Three of us had dinner one cocktail each three entrées two salads, all and it was $220.
We had an excellent lunch and our waitress Jasmine was excellent. She was very personal, friendly and knowledgeable. Really enjoyed ourselves.
Amazing place with excellent ambiance, we would recommend this restaurant and setting to anyone looking for great food and amazing view.
Turn off the tv in the bar. It is very distracting when having fine dining a few feet away.
The food was fabulous, but way too large servings. Couldn’t even finish it for lunch the next day.
For next year’s restaurant week, perhaps drop price (you’re at the very high end), but have smaller portions.
Beautiful place. Long wait for food. Limited lunch menu. Sandwich over-done, fries soggy.
Unfortunately, we went on a Sunday and they only served brunch. We were going there for the restaurant week menu. Therefore, There were a lot more selections to choose from and the food was very good.
Beautiful ambiance 🌟
Went there with my wife and both of our fish plates were outstanding. The service was great and the outdoor seating next to lake is nice. The fish plates have some really nice sides but no carbs like rice or potatoes so that could be an improvement.
The service was extremely slow! It took well over an hour to get entrees after ordering.
Excellent service and staff
This restaurant was ill prepared a terrible experience. We were there for lunch for an 85 th birthday and it was one of our biggest disappointments at any restaurant. The menu is very small so we decided burgers would be okay and of course they only had enough meat for one burger? How does this happen at 1:00 and an empty restaurant? I had also called ahead to tell them it was my mother’s 85th and nobody had made a note of it . It was a surprise to our waitress. It seemed from pictures on the website to have a beautiful setting and to be a fine dining establishment, THAT WOULD BE A NO!
Great place to celebrate any occasion.
Typically, we’ve always had great service. For this visit it was sub par.
A hidden gem right on a man made lake. Outdoor patio with firepits. Had Scallops and shrimp with Black garlic Risotto. Delicioso ! Bring your own wine, ok wine list, corkage $25.00
Melange is located in a beautiful setting. You are warmly greeted every time. The lake views are wonderful. The menu changes from time to time. We both ordered the turkey club sandwich. It was good and very fresh. This restaurant is a great spot if you want a quiet and pleasant dining experience.
Melange is our favorite restaurant. It never disappoints!
We had a lovely mother's day brunch outside next to the lake, food was excellent. The only issue was we were seated promptly but no acknowledgment from anyone for 10 mins. I had to get up and go inside find someone. After that all was good.
Food was cold. Forgot half my husbands order. Restaurant seemed overwhelmed by holiday.
I've always enjoyed this restaurant and still do. The only reason I am not giving it an overall 5 stars is because I feel some of the furniture needs to be cleaned up around the property. Plus, the menu had some unique options which is fun but I think it lacked more basics - making it tough for everyone to find something to order.
Beautiful view and ambiance. The food was wonderfully prepared and everything was delicious! The chef visited our table and made sure our anniversary dinner was extra special.
Outside would have been wonderful with the gorgeous views...too windy that evening.
We had a wonderful dinner! Great wait staff! Very attentive!!!! Definitely will return!
The out door area needs a refresh. Food and service was good.
Celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. Had a wonderful dinner. We sat out on the patio overlooking the lake. It was peaceful, service was great and the food was delish!
The food was average. Our server was very good. The space is beautiful. Just don’t expect much from the food
Sadly, all three of our entrees came out cold and flavorless, and the bottle of Champagne we ordered came out WARM! Our server was very nice, but it couldn’t make up for the lackluster food!
Thankfully the manager took all of our meals off the bill and we only paid for the warm champagne.
I’d skip this place and go to Cork & Fork right down the road!
Fabulous! One of the best settings for a restaurant of any that I've been to in years. I had the bluefin tuna and my date had the salmon fillet. Both were exceptionally well prepared and delicious beyond description. All of the staff are very accommodating and very friendly and it just made for a super evening overall.
I brought a friend who hadn’t been there before and he was vowed by the beautiful location. It was a nice surprise for me to see Jasmine was working there as she has always been very personable and efficient. We all have bad days and maybe that’s why she wasn’t her usual self. I will definitely be back and hope everyone is having a better day!
Just LOVE this place. Could sit on the patio all day and drink wine and enjoy the appetizers or anything else they offer. So peaceful and beautiful.
Service couldn’t have been better. Wonderful setting and the food was delicious. Can’t ask for more than that.
Came for NoChella menu and loved it! Great ambiance and delicious food.
Not my first time lunch and happy hour better. The dinner prices do not deliver any wow for the price. My capriccio tuna which I had before and like lacked flavor. I think forgot or skimped on lemon oil topping. My dads steak way over cooked and tough for 50 bucks and sides uneatable
